Concerned Dec 16, 2016

I would not recommend this day care provider. The caregivers sit around knitting instead of caring for the children. Most of the caregivers are VERY strict and are often sarcastic when speaking to the children. Very few toys are provided and little physical evidence of any learning projects.
